Slurry Lagoon And Housing Development Back On The Agenda For Crossways

8:11am 21st November 2014

Serious concerns about new plans to build a slurry lagoon and a major housing development near Crossways are being heard at a Parish Council Meeting.

Both proposals that will be discussed on the 27th November have been submitted before, but were withdrawn after fierce opposition from people living in the village.

Over 130 objections were received when the installation of the slurry lagoon was first proposed but none of these will be taken into consideration for the new application.

The housing development is looking to build houses and light industrial units on the land adjoining Oaklands Park on the outskirts of the village.

The council is worried that if this type of development goes ahead - it will open the floodgates that will have a major impact on the future of Crossways.

Chairman of the Parish Council Andrew Brewer says: "It's cynical, I think it's wrong and unfair to the residents of Crossways that we are facing this all again."

"We do not want a development of this sort right on the edge of the village. It's right opposite houses for goodness sake!"
